"Working together to create a better Swindon"

Questions for Candidates for Election to Swindon Borough Council on 4 May 2006

Swindon Civic trust will contact each candidate standing for election to the Borough Council and invite them to answer the questions shown below. Before the election, we will publicise the answers we receive from them on this site and elsewhere.

We are doing this so voters can see what candidates think about key issues concerning the development of our town. We hope this will enable voters to make a more informed choice.

Please note that Swindon Civic Trust is not connected with any political party and does not get involved in party politics.

Not all candidates have answered the Questions! But we have left their names in lists so this is clear if your that candidate hasn't provided answers for you to read.
